For the past years, Barbara Vercruysse has been a Transformational Coach and the owner of Barbara Vercruysse – Start the Life of Your Dreams. Accepting only a few select clients each month, she ensures that her clients receive the utmost in care, attention and personalization. Barbara’s focus is on building resilience, building self-confidence, and helping her clients to find or recover their passion and purpose in life.
A celebrated author, Barbara published the books “Start the Life of Your Dreams – A 7-step Program to a Successful and Fulfilled life” and “7 Most Powerful Techniques to Release Stress,” and has been featured in the Huffington Post.
After earning a master’s degree Field in French Studies, Cum Laude from Provinciale Hogeschool voor Vertalers en Tolken, Barbara went on to complete postgraduate studies in Marketing, cum laude at VLEKHO Business School Brussel. She was recently selected for the ThoughtLeaderSchool, under its founder, Bryant McGill, where she has been able to transform her own life and her ability to impact the lives of others for the better.
Part of Barbara’s passionate drive is due to her incredible story: in 2003 she was diagnosed with stage 4 skin cancer and given approximately 6 months to live. But after several surgeries and a year of chemotherapy, she survived it all. Upon reclaiming her health and being given a new lease on life, she left the family business, a construction company that her parents had passed down to her. The time had come for Barbara to follow her passion and started her own coaching business.
90% of Barbara’s clients are women, and many are corporate leaders between the ages of 30-50. She advises on marketing, quality control and personal development, including for multinational brands such as BMW. In spite of her focus on being able to provide quality coaching (over offering less than superior service to a large quantity) when accepting new clients, she is able to reach and empower thousands of people across the world through her vibrant social media and blog.
Barbara credits her success to being able to lead by example. She has faced many challenges and much adversity in her life, and through her extraordinary resiliency and ability to problem solve, she is able to help to her clients translate their setbacks into success.
